Commandline Challenge – This is pretty cool! A good test of your bash chops. I got stuck waaay too early.
Alassian University – if you have been getting inundated with Atlassian ads on WUBR, or actually use Jira and Confluence, this is their corporate training site. I have taken a little of the official Jira training and so far feel it needs refinement.
Xen4 QuickStart – for a project I’m starting this week modeling an older CentOS environment at work. CentOS host running Xen w/ guests. Seeing how to migrate them easily over to VMWare. No need to migrate the hosts, so this should be (hopefully) an easy task for VSphere Standalone Converter. Still, want to create a test environment first before attempting this with the real thing.
I’m so very glad to have found this fix before I went and spent either $ on a new keyboard (and time to replace it), $500 on a used Macbook Air, or the almost $2,000 on a new Macbook Pro. My Macbook Air (2012) had been acting up the past couple weeks – the keys on the right-side of the keyboard started to not work. The <ENTER> key was probably my biggest problem, but the ‘o’ and ‘p’ and comma stopped working as well. I assumed this was a hardware issue because if I banged on the key really hard, it would work!
So before I went out and spent $$, I googled this some and people were talking about a possible loose keyboard wire, etc. Then I stumbled upon this information over on iFixit. Resetting the SMC is not something I thought of for this issue as it was, to me, so clearly a hardware problem.
I tried it anyway, just (while Macbook is powered on) hitting the CTRL-OPT-SHIFT-POWER then powering the machine back on. This worked immediately! So relieved to have one less thing to worry about buying this month.
